Atkinson – Owen P. Goodine, 78, passed away October 11, 2020, at his home. He was born March 17, 1942, in Milo, the son of Charles L. and Mildred P. (Clement) Goodine. Owen worked for Bangor and Aroostook Railway for over 35 years, including the last 20 years as a machine shop supervisor. After his retirement he was self employed for several years building homes with co-worker and great friend, George Johnson. Owen was never one to stay still very long and could often be found gardening or sawing out lumber in lumber mill. He was an excellent woodworker. Owen loved hunting and fishing with family and friends; Ice out fishing in Allagash every year, fishing on Schoodic Lake with Victor, and a moose hunt with his grandson, Trevin, were some of his favorite memories. He always looked forward to and had a passion for deer season. He thoroughly enjoyed watching his family grow and spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Owen will be remembered as a friend to everyone by his warm embraces, kind words, caring heart, and cheerful smiles.
Owen is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Roberta (Doore) Goodine; two sons, Tony and wife, Tami, and Todd and wife, Christine; daughter, Amy and companion, Thomas Hall; 8 grandchildren, Jennifer Noke and husband, Luke, Tia Baxter and husband, Andrew, Ashley Goodine, Tristi Gould and companion, Matt Colley, Aaron Goodine, Branson Goodine, Trevin Guyotte and significant other, Sidney Quigley, and Jackson Goodine; 4 great-grandchildren, Clara, Avery, and Blakely Noke, and Ayla Baxter; 3 brothers, Gregory and wife, Cathie, Timothy and wife, Libby, and Norman and wife, Teresa; 3 sisters, Cynthia Goodine, Gloria Green and husband, Guy, and Helena Green; and several nieces and nephews.
